Ethics in the Electronic Age: Be Careful When Using That Smart Phone, Tablet, Blog, Social Network…
Monday, Jun 03 2013

Using the latest technology to communicate with clients, the court, and the public is often a necessary part of a lawyer's job. But incorrect use of these tools can lead to disaster, particularly when it involves the inadvertent disclosure of a client's confidential information. The stakes are raised even higher when information created, distributed, or stored electronically is subject to discovery. This program will address common mistakes that lawyers make with cell phones, speaker phones, voicemail, e-mail, and wireless handheld devices like smart phones. Additionally, using illustrations from multiple practice areas, the program will provide a basic grounding in electronic discovery and provide practical guidance to lawyers in handling matters involving electronically stored information (ESI). Finally, the audience will hear about how the next generation of Internet communications (e.g., blogs and social networks) carry with them even greater risks along with their benefits. This updated program will provide CLE credits to past attendees.
